From beloved design team Country Threads comes this all-new collection of patterns inspired by quilts from the Civil War era. Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene's signature make-do style comes to life in 14 quilts, from small, simple tributes to larger quilts featuring hundreds of scrap fabrics.
Projects are paired with period photographs and fascinating true stories of unsung heroines of the Civil War, from women who disguised themselves as soldiers to others who became doctors, nurses, and even spies in order to serve. Whether you're a fan of traditional designs, Civil War fabrics, or scrappy-to-the-max patterns, these stunning quilts are sure to inspire.

Since retiring in 2014 I have enjoyed the luxury of time--time for gardening, babysitting, volunteering, traveling, reading, feathering my nest, and sewing. My husband, Roy, and I still live in the home where we raised our three boys; it's a wonderful house but it is also 120 years old and always seems to need a remodeling project. I have an ambitious plan for a large gardening project in the spring and I can hardly wait to get that dirt under my fingernails. I'd like to be remembered as a maker of pies, quilts, gardens, art, fun, and home. What more could one ask out of life?Visit Connie's website
